The Cost of Living with a Brain Injury
Brain injury is one of the leading causes of death and permanent disability in the U.S., affecting approximately 2.5 million people each year. Brain injuries, even when classified as “mild,” are still very serious injuries that require attentive medical evaluation and care. Because a brain injury can result in a wide array of health issues, the cost of this care can be very steep and potentially persist for the rest of the victim’s life.
While the cost of living with a brain injury long-term varies depending on the severity of the injury, the estimated cost of treating someone with a traumatic brain injury is between $600,000 and $1,875,000 over a lifetime, but costs can reach as high as $3 million or more in many cases.
TBI victims may incur costs for:
- Long-term care facilities
- Professional caregivers
- Wheelchairs and other special devices
- Physical therapy
- Prescription medication
- Mental health care
- Loss of income
Without sufficient compensation, bills for these needs can threaten a victim’s financial security and place undue burdens on family and friends. Victims should not have to pay the cost of an accident that was not their fault!
